Tequila Supremo, the producers of Maracame, is wholly owned and operated by the Camarena Family of Arandas, Jalisco. Known commercially as Casa Camarena.
Tequila Supremo was founded by Augustin Camarena in 1938. He built a solid family tradition based on a single dream: to produce the finest tequila, made of the agave from the highlands in Jalisco and to share that product, not only in Mexico but worldwide.
The Camarena's family heritage in tequila began more than 250 years ago. Their spanish ancestors immigrated to Mexico in the early 18th century and co-founded the town of Arandas in 1761. Long considered the epicenter of artisanal highlands tequila production, Arandas is home to their family-owned tequila distillery.
In 1970, Doña Elena Camarena, daughter-in-law of Don Agustin, assumed control and ownership of Casa Casco Viejo and the mother company, Tequila Supremo.
